RIAA Lays Off Staff! No Sympathy Here!

Boycott RIAA!

Hyperbot.com is reporting that the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is laying off staffers worldwide. Sources from within puts the amount of individuals laid off at between 90-100 across the US and abroad.

Major labels have been scaling back their contributions to the organization during these tough economic times. Unconfirmed sources say the organization may announce either a merger with another organization or a complete shut down.

If that happens, I’d jump for joy! I may sound hypocritical, but an organization that has done enough to put fear in the hearts of grandparents and 11-year-old’s essentially has no sympathy coming from me.

To be honest, the sooner that organization shuts down, the better!
